on the united states, for sure we should have cancelled his visa instead of saying, well, we'll look at his visa again after it's expired. because the results of that was 300 people on the plane almost expired. so this is a very big wake-up call. and the first place we should wake up is to toss out the views of the so-called privacy advocates who have been hangin' around the fringes of this question for the last five years, a body scan with the technology today doesn't invade anybody's privacy. you can't tell whether it's a man or a woman. >> but yet it's these privacy groups, governor, that still make a big deal of it. we're just getting word that the minneapolis airport. more on that. we'll let you know but it's on the heels of this disruption in newark a couple days ago. but what keeps happening here? >> the congress needs to stand up to these folks and say, hey, mandatory patdowns are a bigger invasion of privacy than the body scan. i would hope that the president of the united states tells people today that there will be mandatory body scans on every domestic polite in the united states and

-terror strategy. am i wrong? >> i think it's deeper than that. the united states has a problem. if this was a political matter, then you could have one level of concern. but the fact is that we are in a war, our enemies are clever enough to take haggai nearian, train him in yemen, ship him through amsterdam. our bureaucracy is so lacking in focus that even when this guy's father called the american embassy and warned us specifically about his son, we couldn't find a way to stop him and frankly issue the white house advisor yesterday made no sense when he said there was no smoking gun. we don't have to approve the visa or the flight of every foreigner who wants to come here. the burden of proof ought to be on that person. if somebody's father calls and says, my son has gone radical. i think he may be in a training camp. i think that ought to be a high hurdle for that person to get a visa to the united states or be allowed to fly into this country. >> you know the bureaucracy is always going to screw up. it's just never going to be entirely perfect. and this flight emanating in t
. major garrett at the white house. good to see you. thank you. the united states embassy in yemen is back open for business tonight after the terrorist threat forced it to close for two days. the embassy reopened after local counter terrorism forces say they killed at least two al-qaeda militants who were reportedly behind that very threat. other western embassies are reopening. many with limited services and very high security. now word of another potential missed signal before the attempted christmas day bombing. this involved a radical imam whom the feds were watching after linking him to the fort hood killings. more than two months before the failed attack. katherine is live, this goes way back to october. right? >> reporter: that's correct. we have obtained a radical cleric's blog posting from october 7 and in that, american who supports al-qaeda from yemen, appears to hint an attack is in the pipeline. he writes america cannot and will not win. there is no rolling back of the world wide jihad movement. when this new front of jihad starts in yemen, it might become the single most imp
in the wake of this, of course, very frightening event that happened on christmas day in the united states when there was a failed bomb attack. people's nerves are very much on edge. there is also a dark humor that permeates some sectors of society. we've heard of different people making jokes in different airports and it is not a joking matter right now. so we know that these people may have been drinking. they've been arrested. >> excuse me for just a second. sky news is interviewing live. they're the fox news equivalent for london. listen. >> did they, from your viewpoint, make their way directly to that passenger? >> in an instant. it happened straight away. they were very efficient and effective in their arrest. >> what reaction from him when he was made aware of what was happening to him? >> he seemed pretty calm. there was no shouting, no screaming. i think he sort of gave in straight away. >> reporter: you say two arrests were made. did you see the second person being taken from the aircraft? >> i didn't see the second person. i heard that through some other passengers on board. >>
that secretary of state hillary clinton is in fact heading back to the united states with some 50 americans on board. you will remember our coverage earlier here on fox, the u.s. coast guard in fact flying her in on one of the aircraft this afternoon where she was to meet with the president of haiti and the prime minister. bringing aid to embassy workers in need of food and water and more aid to haiti. now we're getting word that the secretary of state hillary clinton leaving haiti, so a short visit there and taking some 50 americans with her. the mite of generosity will be bound by two former commander in chiefs. president clinton and president bush accepting the invitation to lead private measure and president obama saying the enlistment of his predecessor is inspired by the success of the relief effort after the 2004 tsunami that struck asia. clinton and g.h.w. bush headed that. despite the haiti tragedy, president bush and clinton today also focussing on the country's future prospects. >> there is just an unbelievable spirit amongst the haitian people. while the earthquake destroyed a l

: many nations led by the united states are heeding the call. >> we learn about the horrifying scope of this catastrophe, destruction and suffering that defies comprehension. that is why thousands of american personnel, civilian and military are on the scene working to distribute clean drinking water and food and medicine and thousands of tons of emergency food supplies are arriving every day. >> geraldo: and two former occupants of the white house lend their voices to what is fast becoming one of the largest relief efforts ever. >> a lot of people want to send blankets or water. just send your cash. one of the things that the president and i doll is to make sure that your money is spent wisely. as president obama said, you can look us up on clintonbushhaitifund.org. >> we want to do what i did with the president's father in the tsunami area. we want to be a place where people know their money will be well spent and we will ensure the ongoing integrity of the process. >> geraldo: as fox news correspondents criss-cross the fields of the dead and broken hearted the secretary of state t
a price for that >> this time they are doing with it 1/6 of the united states' economy giving away not just hundreds of millions, giving away billions year after year to get this mismatched awful piece of legislation through the senate. outrageous. >> sean: what the political consequences? who pays a price for this? >> i think about 2006 the republicans made the mistake of thinking that earmarks weren't going to be a big deal. remember that they passed it over? we had the bridge to nowhere. this is a bill to nowhere because it doesn't get you where you want to be, i coined it. any way, it doesn't get them where they want to be. even speaker pelosi took a shot at the president saying this isn't the bill we thought we were going to get she is going to pass it through any way. >> it is so naked. it is so obvious what is going on. you can't pull the wool over the people's eyes. they noah is going on and who is -- they know what is going on and who is going to pay. >> sean: republicans were up nine points as we begin the new year. we see the president's approval ratings. does this trans
for all international relief efforts headed to the earthquake zone. today the united states air force landed with pallets of supplies but help cannot arrive quickly enough and can't get inland quickly enough. 65 french rubble clearing specialists and sniffer dogs landed this morning. their knowledge will be invaluable but think about it, a minimum of tens of thousands of buildings are on the ground a minimum of tens of thousands of people are dead. the government is now estimating upwards of a quarter million dead people potentially. i mean relief effort looks beautiful and thank god for them but the task at hand. in addition, china, belgium, spain, three dozen countries are on the ground. bill hemmer is watching it all. what a busy spot that's been, billy. >> it has, shepard. the food and water you talk about with steve harrigan is not coming. we've been here the better part of 9 1/2 hours and this airport over the past two hours slowed down considerably. i fully expect the when we arrived at daybreak today we would see the pallets of water and food but it hasn't happened yet. i say
to them to go so that they can keep them on doing the paper work in the united states. >> they had emergency visas issued to 80 of the children including one of the harris children. >> yes, one of the harris children went today. >> she is still here with us and hopefully on monday she will fly home. >> why is it that just one of the harris children were able to make it on the flight? >> i think that happened like that. it is not because she doesn't have the paperwork like the birth certificate, she does, the truth is with the list, she was not on it but we are working hard to put her on the list on monday. >> what has the situation been here with the food and water and security? i know they were concerns when we were here. >> for food the situation is better. and the situation is one of concerns but we are trying to have some guards to make sure that we are safe and today we are low on water. we are going to see how we can get water for the children that are here. >> and there are still over 40 children here as you can look around and you see children still living outside of house.
it it will get a full patdown before boarding any flight to the united states. laura ingle is live at newark international airport. i was in that airport last night and flying in from the cotton bowl in texas and landed in newark and had no idea what was going on. they took our plane for a couple of hours over to a holding place and when we walked into the airport, laura, you and i travel a lot for business. i have never seen a flood of people in an airport like that in all my born days. it was so cold outside that everybody who needed to be rescreened was let inside and waiting for security. you couldn't move. it was a mess. >>> definitely looked like a night. >> well, i talked so long that we lost our satellite. jinx on you. maybe we will get it right back. the thing with that last night was and we knew it at the time when we landed we went straight to fox news.com and find out, though the pilot didn't know it, fox news.com was telling us that a man had been inside security, many of you probably heard this story but the man was inside the sterile zone and walked outside and came back. peop

by terrorists against the united states. it disturbs me a little when i think that we are too eager to say there's no longer a war on terror because we're no longer at war with terrorists. i believe we are at war with terrorists. i believe they continue to declare war against us and continue to train for it. they continue to implement terrorist schemes, whether it be in the middle east or attempt to carry the schemes out in the united states. i think we should understand that. if we do, we maximize the effort we put into intelligence and gathering information that can disrupt them and we adopt policies that don't assist them, don't expose what we know to them, because every time we increase what we share with the terrorists through our information that we hand out in the world generally, it makes the terrorists a bit more capable. >> neil: we are learning, general, speaking to you at the detroit metro airport, authorities are questioning three to five passengers from saudi arabia about this incident. there's a connection beyond what we fear and again, on a flight coming from abroad here, what do

are not grounded in prejudice and at the time the republican president of the united states said the senator should go as well. >> shannon: the democrats say there is no way you could probably compare the two situations. here is what robert gibbs said about trying to equate reid's remarks to lotts. >> i would suggest they spend about 20 seconds reading a little history and figuring out that to draw that analogy strains any intellectual enterprise. >> shannon: from the other side of the aisle we have texas senator john cornen who said it is difficult to see the situation as anything other than a clear double standard on the part of senate democrats and others. democrats expressed outrage at senator lott and called on him to step down as leader. the same standard should be applied to senator reid and his embarrassing and racially insensitive statements. >> shepard: shannon, good to see you, thank you. >>> the fort hood incident. before it they questioned his confidence and behavior and questioned his highwayialty to our nation. but military doctors still gave positive evaluations of dr. nadalp.hasan.
a visa to the united states. >> okay. >> or be allowed to fly into the country. >> you know bureaucracy is always going to screw up. it's never going to be person. this flight in the negligenter lands and the way they do things is different than the way we do things. now, this overreaction. they're padding down everybody chbl the question is in your opinion, are we safe? i mean, are these people going to be able to get through the shield and has the obama administration weakened our defenses against al qaeda? >> we're not safe. we're in much greater danger than a year ago. it's not just bush versus obama. north koreans had an additional year to build nuclear weapons and missles. iranians had a year to develop nuclear weapons and to keep paying for terrorists. al qaeda had an additional year and two of the top four people in al qaeda in yemen were released from guantanamo bay. obama administration continues to release terrorists back into the world. >> bush did that. bush released those two guys. >> then, he was wrong and the state department was wrong and initial releases. we now have p
. this is not a green light for haitians to try to get to the united states now. keep in mind, their country is devastated. so it's a prospect that has a whole lot of possibility to try to improve their lives. but the secretary of homeland security saying do not try to get into the united states because tps will not apply to you if you arrive in the united states post-earthquake, you will be detained and you will be sent back to haiti. for the estimated 1 to 200,000 haitian nationals who had no legal documentation basically living here illegally for the past number of years, those people will be allowed now to stay. they can get driver's licenses, they can get work visas and they can enjoy some assistance from the federal government. but instead of having to rely on their family and friends for support and money, hoping they can turn something in and maybe tps will be granted and waiting for the eventuality of being deported has come to a halt, at least for the next 18 months when it will come up for renewal or dismissal. >> we had a state representative from florida on the air here within t
